Race start, finish, and packet pickup will all be at the Yellow Fork Canyon Trailhead:
Parking is available at the trailhead along with the road. Please plan on arriving at least 30 minutes prior to your start time.
We believe great runners should be awarded for a hard effort. There will be awards for top 5 male and female finishers in both the 15k and 30k (a combo of fresh new gear, gift cards, and a trophy). Awards will be handed out 30 minutes after the top 5 male and female racers finish (example: top 5 of 30k finish at Noon, then 30k awards will be presented at 12:30).
We are planning on having a few photographers out on the course. These photos will be available for purchase and download from the photographers themselves once the race is over.
Right now we are a go. Any updates surrounding COVID restrictions that would influence the race will be communicated as quickly as possible to all racers.
Refunds: We aren't here to take your money. If we can't hold the race and can't find another date to place it, then we will give all registrants a full refund.
